              Landscape Construction (Paperback, 2nd edition)

              Landscape Construction covers the design, building and planning rules as they apply to landscape construction and provides guidance on design and construction to ensure good practices are followed. It also considers the impact of landscape design and construction on the durabilit...y, structure and amenity value of surrounding buildings. The book assumes some knowledge of building and is not a step-by-step guide. It discusses appropriate materials, the best use of them and their durability but is not intended to be a how-to guide to landscape building projects. This second edition contains updated references to the New Zealand Building Code (the Building Code) and New Zealand standards. It includes more information than the first edition on sustainability and covers new materials and the reinterpreted ways that old materials may be used.

              Profiled metal roofs may need replacing for a variety of reasons, from cladding failure and leaks, to a desire to change the appearance of the roof. This Good Repair Guide describes the steps to take when removing an existing profiled metal roof and replacing it with new long-...run profiled metal roof cladding. It also covers roof underlay, fixings, valleys and internal gutters, roof penetrations, roofs that abut a wall or parapet, old roofs with no purlins, and flashings. It does not cover the replacement of the profiled metal roof cladding with another roofing type.

              A roof is the first line of defence against rain, hail, snow and wind entry. High up and often overlooked, roofs are either the crowning glory of a building, exposed and proud, or a utilitarian solution for keeping out the rain, which is hidden from view. Whatever the approach,... many factors must be considered to ensure the roof will perform as expected. Roofs have been constructed in a wide variety of forms, dictated by technical, regulatory, economic or aesthetic considerations. They can be flat, pitched, vaulted, conical, curved, domed, lantern, gabled, monopitch or shed, hipped mansard or in combinations. The aim of this resource is to identify and discuss the myriad of factors that need to be considered as part of the design and material selection to achieve a successful roof.

              Description: Internal moisture can be controlled without huge cost. It requires an understanding of why the moisture occurs, how it affects the indoor environment and how it can be managed. By eliminating the causes of moisture where possible, removing moisture at source where it... cannot be eliminated and using ventilation, heating and insulation as secondary moisture management systems, homes may be drier, warmer, healthier and more comfortable places to live. The lives of building structures, internal finishes, fittings and furnishings are extended. This book identifies the causes and provides some solutions to eliminate or effectively manage indoor moisture.

              Repainting Textured Finishes: Good Repair Guide

              For their successful use, texture-coated claddings - typically stucco, EIFS (exterior insulation and finishing system) or texture-coated flush-stopped fibre-cement - rely on good detailing and installation, a cavity, a coating to seal the surface against moisture penetration and ...regular maintenance of that coating to ensure the surface remains weatherproof. From 2005, a cavity became a requirement for stucco and EIFS or texture-coated fibre-cement where the building weathertightness risk exceeds 6; from 2011, a cavity became a requirement for all EIFS and flush-finished fibre-cement. Other claddings with similar finishes include plastered masonry veneer, lightweight aerated concrete (also known as autoclaved aerated concrete, AAC) and polystyrene block walls, which have become more common since 2005, and a small number of plastered and lightly textured concrete masonry and concrete buildings. Unfortunately, many owners of buildings with these cladding systems perceive them as being maintenance-free, and recoating work is not carried out as frequently as it should be. Also, while a coating may appear sound, the surface may in fact have worn off and be permeable to moisture as it becomes thinner. Repainting over the texture is required as recommended by the coating manufacturer. Recoating intervals are typically every 3-5 years where a glaze coat has been applied and approximately 7-10 years for paint systems. The recoating interval may be more frequent for some systems - refer to the cladding system warranty and manufacturer's guidelines. Most current coating systems do not incorporate a clear glaze coat applied over the acrylic weatherproof coating. Recoating to keep the substrate well protected may be necessary even if the appearance of the coating is still acceptable. This book explains what textured-coated cladding systems are and it looks at the rules and regulations, health and safety, tools, recoating and maintenance of repainted textured finish

              Of the 1.7 million or so dwellings in New Zealand, about 1.2 million have suspended timber ground floors. In a series of house condition surveys that BRANZ carried out on randomly selected houses around New Zealand in 1994, 1999, 2005 and 2010, all of the surveys identified a... lack of subfloor ventilation and subsequent higher moisture levels as a problem for houses with suspended floors. Of the houses surveyed, 66% did not meet current requirements for ventilation while 33% had less than a third of the current requirements. The resulting high level of moisture was a significant factor in visible deterioration such as corrosion and decay. This book looks at the consequences and causes of subfloor dampness, rules and regulations, health and safety and solutions for subfloors.

              This guide covers all aspects of stucco cladding, from design through to problem-solving. It still concentrates on plastering, backing, reinforcing, number of coats, sand quality, mxiing, additives, plaster application, curing and painting, but now includes new sections on perfor...mance requirements and design and specification. It is an essential reference tool for designers and specifiers, building contractors, stucco applicators, building officials, tutors and students of construction-related disciplines. It should be read in conjunction with BRANZ Weathertight Solutions Vol 2: Stucco.

              Since being first published in 1996 as Good Tiling Practice, this book has been an essential reference for designers, specifiers, waterproofing applicators, tilers, building officials, students and building owners who wish to have a greater understanding of what makes a successfu...l tiling installation. This fully revised and updated third edition, specifically written for the New Zealand building industry, carries on that tradition of practical, easy-to-read information with extensive use of photographs and illustrations. Its emphasis is primarily on the design and construction principles that need to be followed to ensure that the finished tiled surface is of a high quality. None of the components of a tiled finish - framing, substrate, waterproofing, adhesive, grout or tiles - can be considered in isolation from one other. Included in this guide are sections that describe the performance requirements for tiled finishes, the materials that make a tiled finish, substrate materials and their installation, how to deal with movement, the design and construction of internal and external wet areas, and specification for adhesives, tile installation, grouting and maintenance. Swimming pools, heated floors and tile sealing are all briefly covered. Another section deals with the various types of tiles available and provides guidance on selection of tiles for specific areas. This new edition remains an essential reference tool for all those involved in the selection, design or installation of a tiled finish.
